C is for Completed

I have finally finished up the C reviews.  74 albums came under scrutiny and the faves from this bunch were (in order):

  1. Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds – “Henry’s Dream”
  2. Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds – “Let Love In”
  3. Kasey Chambers – “Barricades and Brickwalls”
  4. Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds – “Dig!!! Lazarus Dig!!!”
  5. Rob Clarkson – “Off Your Faith”
  6. Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds – “The Boatman’s Call”
  7. Custard – “Wahooti Fandango”
  8. Rob Clarkson – “Shirts & Skins”
  9. The Cure – “Greatest Hits”
  10. Kasey Chambers & Shane Nicholson – “Rattlin’ Bones”
  11. Crowded House – “Crowded House”
  12. Custard – “Loverama”
  13. Clouds – “Penny Century”
  14. Neko Case – “Fox Confessor Brings The Flood”
  15. Johnny Cash – “American III: Solitary Man”

Conclusions to draw from that list:

  • Aussie artists dominate the C ranks
  • … and Nick Cave and his band are preeminent amongst them
  • Artists who get it right once, tend to get it right again…

This blog has failed to live up to it’s title over the past couple of months. My teaching commitments have hampered my progress.  They have ended for the year now, so I am vowing to get to 250 reviews by year’s end.  Stick around for some fun.
